Activist appealed to African Union AU To find means of protecting African Indigenous craftsman works before foreign modern design wipe them out

It is clear that Foreign artistic product has already succeeded in dominating all Africa countries with new decorative design , and this is making most of the manufactures once “made in Africa “including Nigeria seems to be irrelevant to the consumers,

The chairperson of the foundation for the protection of women and children in Nigeria comrade Ramatu tijjani makes the called when she visited one of the Associate member of Blacksmith union during the weekend in Kaduna and kano market.

“Chinese and Japan and European product has dominated our African indigenous craftman working thereby killing the local industries day by day,”

“Calling on African to be patronizing local made product of their country’s ,so as to boost their own economic”

She make mansion that as a result of foreign good and other different design of new product coming into the country ,many locally made artistic product were not given attention to, and as such, people never take them serious,

The activist says ,globally the importance of heritages and historic things to countries, and even in developing nations like Nigeria cannot be over-emphasized. This is due to its economic, historical, tourist, aesthetic, educational and research significance,

Ramatu said, majority of Nigeria indigenous crafts are facing great challenges of extinctions, and if care is not taking, they will be only remember in history book or any places where past books ,events can be found.

Many African Blacksmiths are becoming jobless due to the continuous arrival of foreign goods that is dominating all African market

African Blacksmitters were left with just only Hoes,Cutlasses,Axes ,Rake construction ,which are uses for domestic uses.

According to the activist ,Nigeria has produced a lot of contemporary artists whose creative efforts has placed Nigeria in the forefront of contemporary African art. However, the modernization of art work in Nigeria is still undergoing a process of evolution.

Nigerian cultural heritages are faced with a lot of challenges such as The influence of modernization, Christianity, commerce, civilization, change, development, looting, and antiquarians, among others. Apart from smuggling, theft, vandalism and looting of museums, another most threatening challenge facing Nigerian cultural heritage is religious dogmatism

Indeed Some Cultural Heritages of Nigeria are also facing challenges which if care is not taking ,it will also be face out due to modernization,

She then called on AU, ECOWAS and Human right organization to find mean of encouraging African indigenous artists,
